  2. 2. Bringing System Dynamics into Action Research

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Paul Holmström; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; process consultation; Operations Research; simulation; action research; modelling; System Dynamics; healthcare;

    Abstract : System Dynamics simulation is a computer-aided approach to policy analysis and design, often carried out by external experts in simulation. System Dynamics is particularly useful in complicated and complex situations, such as healthcare. However, research has shown that few models in healthcare are implemented. READ MORE
